I just did two days with Ed a couple of weeks ago. He is a fine teacher and I think the time and money was well spent. I was looking for a few tips and techniques to get me through the JS this year, I missed it last year. We worked on the specific things I needed and Ed found ways to correct a couple of issues for me. As I said, time and money well spent.

"The worst day smithing is better than the best day working for someone else."

I said that.

So, just for the record: the fact that it does work still should not be taken as definitive proof that you are not crazy.

Hi Geoff!

Thanks for the kinds words! My main concern with the classes is ensuring the the individual gets what they need/expect. I'm looking forward to seeing you get that JS stamp this year!

I had a chance recently to spend a bit of time with Ed, and his class was well worth the time and effort it took for me to make it happen. Ed bent over backwards to meet my hopes, and has tons more patience than many would. He has a great 'classroom', but made adjustments for tooling that I was more likely to use. From a beginner's point of view, highly recommended.

Take care, Craig
